Reading comics may be a great way to relax and to distract yourself from the problems in the real world. They offer an escape into another realm and they are enjoyable to read as the images are already suggested. 

But some modern artists like to stay in reality and explore everyday problems, making more people aware of them as well as making them discuss and be more mindful. One of these artists is PinkWug. His comics reflect the injustice in the world, but in a fun and playful way.

PinkWug shares his art on Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, Tumblr and the platform on which he has the most followers, Twitter. So if you like these comics, the artist has made it very easy to follow him regardless of what one’s favorite social media platform is. On his Patreon, PinkWug says, “I aim to make my comics accessible to the general public and to raise awareness on important issues in a digestible and shareable format.”

This is sad but true

Bored Panda got in touch with PinkWug and he revealed to us that he has never been that artist that draws all the time: “I didn't doodle in my notebook in high school like most artists I know.” 

He added, “However, I saw the impact that comics like Poorly Drawn Lines and Dinos and Comics were able to have through their relatively simple yet cute drawings and unique writing style. They gave me the confidence to start making comics as a relative beginner in this craft and to slowly develop my own style.”

Don't forget the same applies to electric cars, solar panels, and many other "eco friendly" products!

We don't have to save the world, we only need to help those in our immediate, personal environment. Start small and every helpful action ripples out and trickles up. Every bit of kindness or help makes an enormous difference.

The artist’s comics definitely have a distinctive style in the color scheme and the characters as well as the dialogs. But what really sticks out are the unusual topics. A lot of successful webcomic artists avoid talking about sensitive subjects like politics as that often results in a very mixed and crazy response from the readers.

We asked, what encouraged the artist to focus on such difficult themes as politics and economy and it turns out, it was carefully thought about, “My main focus was always on tackling political themes. The comic format was chosen because it's the perfect medium to quickly introduce people to new lines of thought, new perspectives on the various political issues that affect us all.”

PinkWug is creating comics about what he is really passionate about and with his art, he is trying to make people be more involved in the world we live in. He says “Political apathy is a real problem and I wanted to play a small role in getting more people to care about civil and labor rights.”

But as mentioned before, talking about these matters sparks heated discussions. In fact, PinkWug told us, “The range of reactions my comics have created can only be described as wild. There are always people fighting in the comment section for hours on end.”

I know we can never properly strike like a lot of other industries and what I have suggested in the past is that nursing and junior doctors be given a higher tax free threshold most governments in the world do this for their military to incentivise joining the same should happen for nurses

Fishing stopped being a valid option when they polluted the rivers and prosecuted the fishermen...

However, he sees the bright side as well, “There are also people willing to learn and people willing to teach. There are people thanking me for tackling issues they care deeply about and there are people wishing me death. All in all, I would give it a B+.”

Well, it seems that when some issue really matters to someone, they will accept all sides of the debate and this artist is proof of that.

Let me say this, because it needs to be said again. Feminism is fighting for equality for ALL women. Here for my sisters, not just my cis-ters. If you don’t support trans women just as much as cis women, you’re not a feminist.

PinkWug was inspired by other artists and he has an inspirational message of his own, “I would just like to add that it's never too late to start creative projects. Don't worry about not being able to catch up to people who have been practicing the craft since their birth. Whatever you create, it will be the first of its kind!”

I still don't know how "Police shouldn't be killing people" is a controversial statement.

Always remember, if they're profitable it's because they're not paying you the actual value of your labor. Unionize and demand they take less of what you're due.

too big to fail means I'll fail my re-election attempt if they fail to give big to me.
